This was my first guitar lesson, first instrument lesson from high school really and I was nervous, wasn't sure what to expect but Stelios made me feel very comfortable, his talent is inspiring, he was great with my 4 year old and I can't wait for my next lesson!Oct 7, 2015Verified
Ive had many music teachers over the years and I can confidently say that Stelios is among the best. He is extremely passionate and knowledgable about music, and genuinely enjoys digging into any and all material that you want to learn. Whether you want to learn a new song, work on your own songwriting, or dive into music theory, Stelios is always attentive and ready with encouragement and constructive feedback. He can very quickly figure out how to play a song after listening to it once or twice, and can always break it down so that its easy to learn. If youre interested in songwriting, Stelios often accompanies you and will provide feedback that fosters both growth and independence. He is able to pinpoint both your strengths and your areas for improvement, and tailors his lessons to meet your needs as a student and a musician. Stelios makes his students feel comfortable immediately with his warm, sincere personality and his hospitality. It is clear that Stelios truly loves music of all varieties, and truly loves to teach and learn. These qualities, among many others, make him a rare and excellent guitar teacher.Apr 9, 2015Verified
Stelios is an amazing guitar teacher. My 8 year old son and I have been taking lessons with him for less than 6 months and I can't believe how much we have learned. We are both reading music and actually playing. Stelios has a wonderful way about him. He is very encouraging and I always come away from my lesson feeling good. I highly recommend Stelios!Oct 6, 2015
I've taken lessons for several months with Stelios and found him to be an excellent teacher. He has a broad knowledge of guitar music and technique. He's thoughtful, patient and offers helpful tips on technique, style, and how to practice during every lesson. I always come away knowing something more about guitar playing. His lessons have rekindled my passion for the instrument and helped me improve -- not only by learning new classical and blues pieces, but with almost anything I play.Apr 28, 2015
Guitar teachers are a dime a dozen. Stelios is one in a million. Next to every review you will see a rating of one-to-five stars. Stelios should get 10. I'm always sorry when my lesson with him ends. Each time he impresses me more, and each time I feel I've improved. He's got me attempting classical pieces I never thought I could try. I'm amazed at how much he knows and how beautifully he plays. What a talent. What a nice guy. What a teacher. If he's got a spot open - I recommend you grab it. You won't find better.Oct 22, 2014
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge my hourly rate both at my studio or at the students home. Traveling time gets added to the lesson price. For example, for a student that lives 15m away an hour lesson will be charged as a 1,5h lesson.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It always differs, everyone is unique & therefore requires an individual approach. I will usually try to find ways that the student will relate to the fundamentals of music as well as the instrumental technique. We often will use other instruments like the piano, the voice, or the drums when it seems appropriate.
